Booma Sowkarthiga Balasubramani

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I work at the ADVIS lab, under the guidance of Prof. Isabel F. Cruz. My research interests are primarily in Data Science and Semantic Web. I am currently looking into problems in data integration and geographic information systems, focusing on various applications ranging from prediction of malaria cases in Zimbabwe to consolidating business data for the City of Chicago's Department of Innovation & Technology. I am also passionate about promoting undergraduate research education, and in bringing more women to technology. I am currently serving the Computing Research Association’s Education (CRA-E) committee as a Graduate Fellow. I received my Master of Science in Software Systems in May 2014, from Birla Institute of Technology & Science, India, and my bachelor's degree in Computer Science & Engineering in May 2010, from Selvam College of Technology, affiliated to Anna University, India.
